Drugs, Alcohol, and Women's Health: An Alliance of Regional Coalitions. Final Report.
Nellis, Muriel; And Others
The needs of women and the content of existing information programs concerned with drug and alcohol abuse and general health were investigated through a nationwide Alliance of Regional Coalitions on Drugs, Alcohol, and Women's Health sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Results indicated that: (1) multi-substance abuse is common, but few programs deal with it; (2) substance abuse problems among women have not been documented adequately; (3) a federal interdepartmental task force is needed to focus on these problems; and (4) delivery systems for comprehensive and cost-effective health care services are necessary.
